Issue: Editing - March 2008


MONTREAL – At NAB this April, Maximum Throughput (, the developer of ultra high performance software-based solutions for networked storage infrastructure and media management, will unveil MAXedit Web Edition, a subscription-based online editing service. With MAXedit Web Edition, freelance and station-affiliated TV journalists and videographers reporting from the field have a simple, streamlined editing solution that’s readily accessible whenever and wherever they need to work. Since MAXedit Web Edition is a subscription-based online service, customers can upload their SD or HD content (HDV, DVCPRO, MPEG-2, and H.264 formats) to the online server, edit it and share it with other editors via a Web browser interface.
Editing is executed on the online server, allowing editors to use inexpensive, standard PCs or laptops. Customers don’t need to purchase, install, or maintain their own high-end editing infrastructure because the service provides everything they need, says the company.
Maximum Throughput will also introduce MAXedit Server Edition at NAB, a cost-effective, server-based workgroup editing solution for cutting uncompressed and compressed multi-resolution content. The solution allows multiple editors to edit content from a single server in their facility using standard PCs, low-cost MAXedit Server software, and a Web browser without taxing their LAN’s bandwidth.
